On January 23rd 2017, on his first day on the job, US President Donald Trump issued an executive order pulling the USA out of the TPP. That was the Trans-Pacific Partnership, a 12-nation free trade block that former President Obama had worked to get passed for years. In this podcast, the Professor outlines the TPP-tanking process, who liked it and who hated it, the potential impacts to major world players, and ideological free-trade fallout due to this now-defunct deal. TPP party on!

Hundreds of thousands of Brazilian peeps took to the streets to protest against the government of President Dilma Rousseff last weekend…some calling for her to resign, others calling for a military coup to overthrow her! What, what what is that all about? The Professor explains the situation, and why it is actually an awesome sign of democracy in action, in this bodacious Brazilian society!

After a year of almost non-stop chaos in eastern Ukraine, the Professor summarizes the major events of the Ukrainian unraveling in the last 11 months....but mostly as a backdrop to the actions of Vladimir Putin in this drama, and the potential long-term impacts that all of this mess will have in the Eurasian region. Putin can certainly 'win' at any confrontation in Eastern Europe, but many of us fear that Russia will 'lose' in the long run. The East/West rift between Russia and the US/EU seems...
